New Study: Don't Worry About Reports of Vaccine Injuries. Vaccine Injuries Are Mostly Caused by... "Misinformation" About the Existence of Vaccine Injuries.

Say, did you know that "gaslighting" is Merriam-Webster's 2022 word of the year, based on the number of look-ups?

The word became a verb based on a play, in which a murderer attempted to make a witness doubt her sanity by changing the lighting (the gas lighting) and then insisting it hadn't been changed. (At least, that's my guess; I've never seen the movie. A friend told me this explanation, and I don't think he saw it, either.) (Correction: A commenter explains the actual meaning at end of post.)


"Gaslighting" -- mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful -- has been named the 2022 Word of the Year by online dictionary Merriam-Webster.

"Oligarch", "Queen Consort", "Omicron" and "codify" also made the top of the list
Searches for the word on merriam-webster.com increased 1,740 per cent in 2022 over the year before. But something else happened.

There wasn't a single event that drove significant spikes in the curiosity, as was usually the case for the chosen word of the year.

The gaslighting was pervasive.

"It's a word that has risen so quickly in the English language, and especially in the last four years, that it actually came as a surprise to me and to many of us," said Peter Sokolowski, Merriam-Webster's editor-at-large, in an exclusive interview with the Associated Press prior to the word's unveiling.

"It was a word looked up frequently every single day of the year," he said.

Speaking of: A new study says that the adverse effects attributed to the vaccine aren't real, they're just caused by people believing their will be adverse effects, due to people, such as yourselves, spreading "misinformation."

A recent study suggests that it is not mRNA COVID-19 vaccines that are "most likely" responsible for adverse effects such as blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks, but concerns widely expressed about the vaccines.

In September, the Indian journal "Biomedicine" published a so-called study by self-professed "mRNA Alchemist" and biotech engineer Raymond D. Palmer, entitled "Covid 19 vaccines and the misinterpretation of perceived side effects clarity on the safety of vaccines." The study is presently being hosted on the National Library of Medicine site, which is operated by the U.S. federal government.

The gaslight is set at its normal level. I have no idea what you're talking about.

While various experts, such as internationally esteemed American cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, have issued warnings about potential downsides of the vaccines, Palmer, an astronomy hobbyist and former realtor, claimed that those wary about the COVID-19 vaccines do not just suffer "a profound lack of scientific and medical training" but are at the root of a great deal of vaccine recipients' suffering.

At last, we're finally getting some Tom Nichols-level experts to weigh in.

The gas-lamp is working as it always does. Why are you obsessing about it?

Palmer's paper claimed that various adverse effects that take place "in and around the time of receiving the [COVID-19] vaccine" may result from the "mental stress" generated by concerns about those very vaccines.

While noting that "the likelihood of mental stress causing strokes, heart attacks or blood clots may at first appear unlikely," Palmer nevertheless claimed that "anti-vaccination sentiment could be attributed to the alleged side effects that are perpetuated across social media from anti-vaccination groups."

According to Palmer, blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, dizziness, fainting, blurred vision, and loss of smell and taste are products of mental stress. The mRNA alchemist claimed also that the "science for the vaccines causing blood clots has not been found."

Contrary to Palmer's published suggestion, the University of Utah reported that the Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines have, for instance, been associated with thrombotic thrombocytopenia, where antibodies lead to "uncontrolled activation of platelets ... and blood clots to form."

In April 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced a pause in its recommendations for the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for this very reason.

Discounting previous blood clot links, Palmer said that mental stress "clearly causes vasoconstriction and arterial constriction of the blood vessels."

Persons who are "panicked, concerned, stressed or scared of the vaccination" may therefore see their arteries "constrict and become smaller in and around the time of receiving the vaccine."

I think Jimmy Dore or Kurp Metzger noted that if the "stress and fear causes thrombosis and clots" theory had any validity to it, we should see semi-annual spikes of such conditions in students, at mid-terms and finals week.

But we don't.

Apparently this Tom Nichols level Cognitive Athlete says he's a Ph.D. candidate, but can't say where he's pursuing it.

...

When asked by Rebekah Barnett of the "Dystopian Down Under" Substack about his Ph.D. candidacy, Palmer allegedly said he couldn't provide an answer on account of having signed nondisclosure agreements.

I told you, the gaslight is working normally. Is there something wrong with you?

The CDC just released a report -- forced to do so by a court; they were trying to hide it.

The report says the gaslights have been in good working order for the past two years.

Anyone shocked by the report that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) withheld data about a potentially fatal complication from COVID-19 vaccinations until it was forced under court order to release the data hasn't been paying attention to the CDC's multitude of misstatements and lies over the last two years.

As reported by Just the News, data released under court order shows 1 in 3 among the earliest populations to get vaccinated reported needing medical care, missed school or work, or was unable to "perform normal daily activities," while the CDC continued to fight to keep the data from the public.

Here's more, via Just the News:

Among the 10 million-plus users of the agency's v-safe active monitoring smartphone app through July -- 8.5 million of whom signed up between December 2020 and April 2021, before all adults were eligible for COVID vaccines -- nearly 8% said they required medical care after receiving the vaccines.

For patients ages 3 and older needing such care, nearly 3 in 4 couldn't rely on telehealth visits. They required urgent care (48%), emergency room (15%), or hospitalization (10%).

For infants who were authorized to receive the jabs this summer and are enrolled in v-safe through parents or guardians, hospitalizations were much lower (2%) but urgent care [was] much higher (66%).


Meanwhile, Dr. Science, who knows all there is to know about covid, was deposed regarding his illegal government-corporate censorship scheme and, wouldn't you know it, he was hit with Sudden Onset Specific Subject Alzheimer's.

AG Jeff Landry @AGJeffLandry

Wow! It was amazing to spend 7 hours with Dr. Fauci. The man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon "the science." Only to discover that he can't recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!

Fauci couldn't remember something else -- to wit, any actual studies establishing that masking was effective in stopping covid (or any other RSV), before announcing that The Science (TM) had changed and now demanded that we all mask up.

Dr. Anthony Fauci couldn't cite any studies that changed his mind about masking against COVID-19 during a recent deposition, according to lawyers who were in the room.

Fauci, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director, was among the U.S. officials repeatedly urging people to not wear a mask early in the COVID-19 pandemic unless they were showing symptoms. Among his many public and private statements, he wrote in a Feb. 5, 2020, email that "the typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material."

About two months later, Fauci and other top officials reversed course and issued widespread masking recommendations, regardless of symptoms.

Asked about the change while under oath on Nov. 23, Fauci couldn't provide any studies, according to lawyers representing plaintiffs in a case against the federal government.

"He was asked what studies or study changed his mind in that interim, which is what he claimed--he claimed that it was studied. He couldn't name any," Jenin Younes, one of the lawyers, told The Epoch Times.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican who was also present during the deposition in Maryland, said on social media that Fauci "couldn't cite a single study" to back up his claim that masks were effective against COVID-19.

Over the weekend, the non-scientist politician Fauci played to his base of Hypochondriacal Karens and Goldbricking Teachers Union Officials and left it an open question about whether the government should order schools to be closed again this coming winter:


Jay Bhattacharya @DrJBhattacharya


Astonishingly, Fauci is still pushing school closures conditional on community disease spread. There is no public health or scientific justification for it. The kids have suffered enough.

ABC "News'" Cryptkeeper Karen Martha Raddatz moaned that people, for some reason, just weren't listening to the man she thinks about when she flicks her desiccated sex-bean until all the mummy-dust is shaken off.

"You heard Dr. Fauci, the administration is launching a new campaign urging people to get those flu shots, get those COVID boosters, but I think only about 11 percent have gotten the booster so far, maybe 42 million the flu shot; we've talked about this so many times. People aren't listening -- what do you do?," a very concerned Raddatz wondered.

She didn't wonder why people stopped trusting Fauci, or what he could do to repair trust, such as admitting his errors and playing to his base of political support, neurotic women seeking meaning through imposing order on the world by Mandated Face Burkas. No, she just wanted fresh ideas about how to compel people to comply.

The gaslight is fine.

Do you need to take a pill? What are we going to do about your gaslight fixation?

The Real Meaning of Gaslight in Gaslight. So this is why no one can really explain it.

Hate to be that guy, but in Gaslight the villain was going through all sorts of manipulations to make the heroine think she was losing her mind. What brought her out of it was noticing that the light level would change when her husband wasn't around (because he had turned on the gaslights in the attic where he was searching for something valuable). It was something that others could see and would affirm (because they weren't in on the plot and had no reason not to), so ironically the word that has come to mean jerking a person around to drive them insane was actually the sanity sparing plot devise. You're welcome / I'm sorry as you prefer.

No, you go on being that guy, the cobra nose.

So the movie is called Gaslight, and gaslights do figure into the plot, but gaslights are not used to make her doubt her sanity; other manipulations are used for that purpose. The gaslight itself actually helps bring her back to sanity.

People just call it "gaslighting" for the movie, not for the actual gas lights.
